An invitation to make cookies for cops

If you make mouthwatering chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal crisps, the Maryland chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving wants your help.

As part of its annual "Cookies for Cops" campaign, MADD delivers tins of homemade treats to police officers around the state. The group says police efforts to keep drunk drivers off the road are making a difference, and they want to say thanks.

The National Highway Safety Administration announced in a new report that drunk-driving deaths in Maryland dropped 12.5 % last year. Alcohol-related traffic fatalities in the District and Virginia also are down.

MADD hands out the cookies through New Year's Eve. If you aren't handy in the kitchen, they also are looking for help making deliveries.

There's more information on the Maryland MADD web site. You can also call 410-964-5757.
